This is an older facility. Half of it is shut down. The doors don't close securely. First room I got, seemed to be used, as the trash was not empty and the bath supplies were half full. A possible oversight. After all we are humans and prone to that. So they said they will upgrade me to a better room with a view... What view? It was the view of a passage wall. Most of the staff was very nice, polite and professional. But they can only do so much.... This place charges a daily resort fee. THIS IS NOT A RESORT IN ANY FORM. In fact they say breakfast included and they give you cold bagels or Otis muffins. They have an old Starbucks self serve machine that is simply dirty and has ants crawling all around it. This sits in the checking area of the hotel no coffee in the breakfast area. And there were some 2 week old bananas and apples as well. They call themselves a boutique hotel, this entitles them to collect the resort fee from you. But they provide nothing for the fees.... Not even complimentary water bottles in the room or the check-in area. Anyways this is the honest experience and feedback. Perhaps the pictures and the hype of Orbitz VIP etc built up an expectation that does not exist at this location. The high ratings were from years ago not recently.

Staff was professional. All are needs were met.

I loved everything i have nothing negative to say. It was a great experience it was my first time and i had a good time.

First time in Florida and this hotel was good the staff was nice at check in the floors in the room could of been clean the bathroom had hair from last person all in the shower and in the bathroom But I’d that wasn’t the case it would have been very nice

The rooms are quite large plenty of room for me and my teenaged son and we both are big men!

This is the perfect place to stay. The location is excellent; and the staff exceptional, especially, Velroy...everyone was excellent.

Great but the bathroom shower had a little leak to it. Patrick at the front desk was awesome though and very helpful.

Friendly staff. Wes the robot was a game changer. My mom and aunt are both disabled. It allowed them to not run themselves ragged trying to get breakfast and such. Definitely recommend this hotel and loved it greatly.

What a lovely place. I have only good impressions from staying here.

Friendly staff. Room had small kitchen. Nice landscaping in the courtyard.

Close to everything. The room was very clean and cozy. The hallways and hotel were also very clean. The receptionist was very polite and helpful. I loved the Zen Garden. Good job!! The only thing I didn’t like is that the bed makes noise when I get up or lay down.

Everything was okay. Breakfast was a bit bland but okay. Quiet hotel rested well, busch gardens is about 8-10 mins away.

Very nice. Not much more to add. It was nicer on my previous visit

Loved everything about the hotel, there wasn’t anything I didn’t like

Elevator was not working the entire time of our stay. We were there for a cancer treatment so it would have been nice to know this in advance. Also I was directed to an ice machine on the second floor that was not working. It seems the employee wasn't aware of this. Then I had to find one that was working. All staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Overall it was a nice stay.

Good place to stay. Great staff area seems safe lots to do
